The Girl Next Door

Mia has just moved into a new apartment in London and her neighbor happens to be Liam Payne. She thinks she has fallen for his friend Niall, until Liam gets involved and things get complicated.
Niall or Liam? Niall or Liam?
Will she end up with one of them or none?
Will she be able to escape her past and have a chance at romance?
Or will she stay 'just The Girl Next Door...


32. Chickens, eggs, drinks and ...regrets?

Alex's P.O.V

"Tell me what?" Mia asks, walking into the room, Niall and Harry close behind her.

"Nothing." Liam says quickly, "forget it." 

"Ok." Mia shrugs, sitting down.

I zone out as Mia, Harry, Liam and Niall start talking. Suddenly the doorbell rings, snapping me out of my thoughts, and I get up to go answer it. 

I open the door to Louis and Zayn in the middle of a conversation but they stop when they see me. 

"Hey Alex" They say, synchronized. 

"Hey, come in." I say, closing the door behind them and walking into the living room where Harry and Niall were arguing very graphically over what comes first the chicken or the egg. 

"Ok, you guys have officially exhausted all normal conversation possible." Mia says to them as I sit down next to Harry and Louis and Zayn sit next to Niall. 

"Mia, you should know by now that no conversation involving Niall and Harry is ever normal." Liam tells her.

"True, true." She replys. 

"Well if you guys are gonna to continue debating chicken sex I'm definitely going to need a drink." Mia says standing up, "You guys want anything?" She asks. 

"Coke please" Liam and I say synchronized.

"I'll have a beer please." Louis says. 

"Yeah same." Niall adds.

"Just water for me please." Harry says.

"What about you Zayn?" Mia asks. 

"Nah, i'm good thanks." He replies. 

"Ok then, 3 beers and 2 cokes coming up." She says, turning to go into the kitchen. 

"I'll help." I say, quickly standing up to join her.  

"So...what didn't Liam want to tell me?" She asks as soon as we're in the kitchen and out of earshot of the others.

"Mia..." I trail off.

"I don't let things go that easily Alex." She tells me, raising her eyebrows. 

"It's really no big deal." I say, trying to get her to drop it but this only made her raise her eyebrows again and give me a look that said 'I'm not an idiot so just hurry up and tell me.' 

"Ok well..." I say trailing off. 

"Well..." She repeats.

Crap. What am I going to say?

"He didn't want me to tell you that I was setting him up with my friend." I say quickly.

"Oh. Ok then. Um, alright." She says, sounding a bit shocked. "But, why wouldn't he want you to tell me that?" She asks.

"I don't know." I say, thinking fast, "I guess he was just embarrassed. You know, 'cause you guys kissed."

"How did you know about that?" She asks, taken aback.

"Didn't I tell you? Harry told me. I hope that's ok." I tell her.

"Oh. Yeah, that's fine." She says. "But he shouldn't be embarrassed." 

"Yeah I know. But I promised him so please don't mention anything ok? You can't tell him I told you."

"No, uh yeah that's fine. I won't. I promise." She says, grabbing some cokes out of the fridge and passing them to me.

"Cool. Thanks Mia." I say to her as she grabs 3 beers out of the fridge and opens one for herself. 

"Besides, it's not like anything's going to happen between you and Liam. You're with Niall." I say to her. 

"Yeah." She says, nodding her head as she takes a sip of beer.

"I'm with Niall." She repeats to herself quietly. 

Walking back into the living room with Mia close behind me I think about what she just said. I could have sworn I heard hesitation in her voice, like she was unsure and maybe even a hint of regret?
